Parking and Transit

Frequently Asked Questions

Parking & Transit

Yes! Laramie is the perfect location for bicycling since the town is relatively flat. Students can get from the residence halls to their classrooms much more quickly on bike. For $25 per semester, a town bike, helmet, and lock can be rented from the Outdoor Programs
Yes. Students living on campus, in either a residence hall or in an on-campus fraternity or sorority house, may buy a Green permit, an Electric Plug-In permit, a Purple permit, or a Motorcycle permit. Commuting students may purchase an Orange, Red, or Purple Permit. To see the current costs for parking permits, go to this website. As an alternate, free parking is available in two Park ‘N Ride shuttle lots via UWYO Roundup Services.
A parking permit does not guarantee the holder a specific parking space. It provides the opportunity to park within an area designated for a specific permit type. Drivers are responsible for finding an authorized parking space. Lack of available space, inclement weather or other conditions do not justify parking violations. Keep in mind the Express Shuttle lots and shuttle services are a great alternative to parking on campus. For more information, click here.  
There are no warnings given for parking violations. Fines for parking violations are due upon receipt.  Parking is enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in yellow zones, fire lanes, handicap-accessible spaces, “U” parking, reserved parking, loading/unloading zones, motorcycle parking, and all parking around the residence halls and Greek housing. All other spaces are enforced on university business days, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM (7:30 AM to 4:30 PM during the summer). Overnight parking is not permitted in the Express Lots and is enforced year-round. Three or more unpaid citations or a fraud violation may result in immobilization of the vehicle at the registered owner’s or permit holder’s expense.
Parking on city streets may be available in some areas of Laramie. Parking along the entire north side of Ivinson Avenue between 9th and 15th Streets is free city parking; whereas, parking along sections of the south side of Ivinson Avenue between those same streets is not permitted. Watch for signs prohibiting parking to those without residential permits. Some households or neighborhoods petitioned the city for residential parking permits to ensure that the people who live in the houses will have sufficient parking. Signs will indicate which areas are not available without residential permits.
